Changing the game in South Africa
How Helios Towers plans to manage power, fibreise towers and operate edge data centres in South Africa
Helios Towers South Africa (HTSA) has launched into South Africa in a joint venture with domestic fibreco Vulatel, and an acquisition of home grown towerco SA Towers. It now has around 100 sites with ambitions to grow that tenfold over the next three years. In addition to ambitious build to suit plans, HTSA will also offer fibre connections to MNOs and data centre services beyond their normal customer base. Plus, in a major change to business as usual, HTSA plans to manage MNOs’ power and fibre connectivity to offer a converged solution in a traditionally grass and steel market.
